Labrador Retriever Skills

The Labrador Retriever originated from Newfoundland, Canada. In the early times, it was taught to haul fishermen’s nets into the shore by jumping overboard into icy waters. Then in the 1800s, this breed was transported into England by English ships from Labrador, which was located on the Atlantic Coast of Canada.

Aww, look at this gorgeous boy at my shelter

He's EXACTLY what I've always wanted in a lab, and he looks surprisingly well bred. If I didn't have my two current boys, I'd probably be all over him!
My name is THOR.
I am a neutered male, yellow Labrador Retriever.
The shelter thinks I am about 1 year and 6 months old.
I have been at the shelter since Jul 13, 2009.
His buddy is for adoption as well!
